HYBRID TEA – The Classic single long stem cut rose. Hybrid Tea Roses are not only traditional and popular, they are great garden plants suitable for cutting, single plantings, or in mixed beds with other perennials, shrubs and roses. With single large, well-formed blooms on single sturdy canes, they are exceptionally easy to use in cut flower arrangements. Keep cutting to encourage more blooming and to prevent rose hips.
FLORIBUNDA - Floribunda roses present their blooms in clusters. They are found in all Hybrid Tea colors differing from Hybrid Teas only in their cluster-flowering habit. Floribundas produce profuse clusters of blooms from spring through first frost. Many Floribundas have an upright habit and are excellent for landscaping as they’re shorter than Hybrid Tea roses making them a great choice for a low hedge or border. They are often seen in public parks and similar spaces.
GRANDIFLORA - Grandiflora Roses blend the best traits of hybrid teas and floribundas. They produce the same elegantly shaped blooms as hybrid teas, but in clusters that continually repeat, like floribundas. Some clusters produce stems long enough for cutting. The plants tend to be tall (up to 7 feet), hardy, and disease-resistant.
GROUNDCOVER ROSES – FULL SIZE GROUNDCOVER AND DRIFT
Drift® Roses are a cross between full-size groundcover roses and miniatures. They retain the toughness, disease resistance and winter hardiness of groundcover roses but inherit the compact, tidy size and repeat-blooming nature of miniatures. Miniature roses have small leaves and tiny flowers, mostly seen for sale at grocery stores or indoor plant areas.
The low, spreading habit of Drift® Roses is perfect for small gardens and combination planters. They complement any garden. Continuously blooming from spring to early frost, they are naturally dwarf with very attractive foliage.
Full Size Groundcover rose types are a shorter than an average rose (typically topping out at one to three feet) and wider than tall. They are free-blooming, easy-care to care for, and put on a great show in the landscape, but don't expect huge long-stemmed blossoms. Just taking a hedge shear to the spent roses after blooming is about all the maintenance they require.
SHRUB – KNOCK OUT AND MEILLAND
Knock Out™ is a compact, tidy shrub rose and resistant to black-spot. The foliage is a dark purplish green and turns to burgundy in the fall. The single petal blossoms are produced in masses all over the bush. Knock Out™ is drought tolerant and If left un-pruned, it can easily grow to be more than 3-4' wide x 3-4' tall. Periodic trims will keep them maintained at a smaller size.
Meidiland® landscape shrub roses are beautiful in the landscape as well. They offer repeat-flowering color all season without the burden of heavy maintenance and provide a wide range of growth habits that fit into formal and informal gardens alike. They are diverse in fragrance, flower forms and colors, and can help prevent erosion on steep slopes.
Whether you’re looking to create a colorful hedge or a vibrant accent or focal point, these easy-to-grow roses are the perfect choice with their great disease resistance and non-stop blooms.

There are a numerous ways to include them in any garden — climbing poles, pillars, arches and trellises, along fences or decks, or even covering the side of a house.
